barotrauma / (other) pressure-related accidents / dysbaric
Explanation:
Hi William,

There should be an accent in disbáricos.

Barotrauma is physical damage to body tissues caused by a difference in pressure between an air space inside or beside the body and the surrounding gas or liquid.

Barotrauma typically occurs to air spaces within a body when that body moves to or from a higher pressure environment, such as when a SCUBA diver, a free-diving diver or an airplane passenger ascends or descends. Boyle's law defines the relationship between the volume of the air space and the ambient pressure.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barotrauma

Dysbaric relates to differences in pressures but actually, decompression sickness and embolisms, another decompression illness in this context, are both pressure-related accidents too.
You'll find the term dysbaric is sometimes used, but it's not too common in English to refer to this kind of accident. Therefore, if barotrauma seems too specific I would suggest "other pressure-related accidents" or simply dysbaric accidents.

It seems to me that what you actually have in your text is a bit of a mish-mash. :O)

DYSBARISMS could do the trick. Seems to be a little more widespread and you'll avoid crossing over to other terms that might be misleading:
